Blast From The Past - 1989 Great Snipe

This juvenile Great Snipe showed well on a footpath beside the river Trent at Girton Gravel Pits in Nottinghamshire. It was present from 27th August until 02nd September and filled a gap in many birder's life list. In the days before digital photography, well for me at least, I had to wait until arrived home, and had the film developed, before I knew what I had got, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with these un-cropped images.
